• Protect buyer and seller identities

    Let your users call and text using their mobile devices without exposing their personal phone numbers.

  • Avoid off-platform transactions

    Keep business transactions on-platform by preventing buyers and sellers from engaging in private communications.

Uber is now launching in a lot of international markets, and Twilio has helped us scale internationally as we grow as a company.

Why add Masked Numbers with Twilio?
  • Scale with your business

    Buy and provision as many phone numbers as you need both in the U.S. and internationally. No matter how fast you grow, Twilio scales with you.

  • Voice and SMS on the same number

    Maximize the ways your users can communicate. With Twilio, voice and texting are enabled for the same phone number.

  • Control when users can interact

    Use Twilio APIs to control when and how your users communicate. For example, you can disable calls outside of service hours, implement lost and found, or prevent any follow-up after the service is concluded.

  • Use phone numbers efficiently

    Reduce the amount of phone numbers you need to buy. With Twilio APIs, you can use the same phone number to bridge concurrent buyer-seller interactions.

Thanks to Twilio’s phone number self-provisioning, Handy saw a 50% increase in pickups.
